Thank you.
I did try a pillow on my lap, but as the blanket grew, it was in the way.

My hands have been going down hill for about a decade. That's why I stick to baby things. I guess size 5 needles and sport weight yarn are the thickest I can manage comfortably.
And I can't quit knitting until I knit through my stash.
